In this paper, safety design of ore transfer facilities in steel works is studied. For ore yard of iron and steel works, it is necessary to supply required amount of iron ore via multiple numbers of conveyers. To attain the stable operation of ore transfer, the optimized usage of transfer facilities for continuous transfer. The equalized load distributions of conveyer operations are preferable for safety transfer operations preventing facility stop by fault of the specified facility. A new method of safety design of transfer facilities is developed based on a decentralized agent model. Simulation results by decentralized agent method revealed existence of the appropriate arrangement of the transfer facilities.
